bad phone number there and in Arroyo Grande.

Patsy Cleeton: Absolutely nothing
John Dell: Absolutely nothing

Nancy C. Flint: In looking through the ten year
reunion book there is a Nancy C. Flint (Scott) born on 6/8/1940. She was
married to a Stephan M. Scott from Sep. 62 until a divorce in Dec 77. I
canít find her in my spy systems but I can locate the ex-husband in Marin
Four hours later... FOUND in Walnut Creek, CA Solved this one by looking for a CA birth of Scott/Flint and found one. Located the daughter in LA and she gave me her motherís information. Called Nancyís number but got a recording.
Bill Grig: FOUND in Wellton, AZ. This was a tough one! Was able to find his marriage record and from that found out he had a son in Santa Maria but also an unlisted number. Then checked Ancestry.com and the SS Death Indexes. Of all places found a William Grigg in Classmates.com that said he was 68 and had addresses in Santa Maria and Wellton, AZ. Then went to the Wellton, AZ white pages and found the number. Talked to I presume the wife and confirmed it was him.
Chuck Haas: FOUND
in Warsaw, MO.
Need some help on this one. He married a Virginia McMartin in
1968 in Santa Barbara County. They had a son named Christopher S. Hall in
1969. The son lives in Ridgecrest, CA with no listed phone number.
Gordon is not in the SS Death Index and I can not find him or his wife in any of
my spy systems.
Am 99% sure I have found him with no phone number or no address. There is a Gordon J. Hall, 68 , living in San Diego with the names Virginia (his wife) and Christopher S. (son) associated with him. Do a GOOGLE search on Gordon J. Hall and be amazed at how many there are!

Through the CA birth index I have been able to find that Sueko and her husband
had a boy named Jerry M. Chandler who was born in 1976. After that the
trail goes cold.
